Crime Report: Woman Cited on Charges of Leaving Twins in Car
The following information was provided by the Canton Township Police Department. It does not indicate a conviction.
Canton Township Police responded May 11 to Kroger, 45540 Michigan Ave., for a report of two children left unattended in a vehicle, according to a police report.
When police arrived, they were told the vehicle in question was leaving the parking lot, the report said.
Police pulled over the vehicle and the woman told police she had left the 2 ½-year-old twins in the car while she shopped but she had “cracked the windows,” the report said.
The woman told police she had left her children in her car while she ran in because it would be difficult to bring them into the store and she only needed a few items.
The caller told police the children had been in the car at least 10 minutes and might have been there longer. Police asked Kroger personnel to check video to see how long the woman had left her children alone.
According to the report, it was 72 and sunny at the time.
The woman was cited on charges of child neglect with a May 23 court date and Department of Human Services was notified of the incident, the report said.
